There is more than one way to hang a lamp and you're likely to encounter almost anything. Once you take off the canopy that covers the ceiling box, you may find a simple, strap fixture that has holes in it for mounting screws. The strap may have a threaded pipe coming out of the center called a Center stud or nipple. The pipe is useful for hanging center hung lights, such as chandeliers and pendant fixtures, swivel straps, allow you to mount lights that are asymmetrical or that need to be pointed in a particular direction. Purchase your new light before you start the necessary hardware usually comes with it. Turn off the power at the service panel, rather than at the switch which might get accidentally flipped, while you're working on the wiring remove the canopy it may be held in place by screws, a mounting nut or a screw collar if necessary, have a helper support.
The light for you remove the wire nut and double-check with a tester to make sure the power is off before disconnecting the lamp, remove the light when you are sure the power is off. If the hardware that came with the lamp is different from the hardware on the ceiling replace the existing hardware with the new hardware, if you're installing a new center stud threaded through the strap, but not so far, that it pokes into the box the threads on a New center hung light may not fit on the nipple and older boxes. If you have this problem thread a bracket known as a hickey over the existing nipple and thread the new nipple into the Hickey, lock the center stud in place by threading a nut over it and tightening it against the strap or hickey. In most cases, you'll be able to bring the wires around the strap, make connections and push the wires up into the box when you're done. However, lamps hung from a screw collar require that you thread the lamp wires through the center stud slide. The nut for the screw collar over the lamp wires feed the lamp wires through the hole in the screw collar.
Then, through the canopy, you have a helper hold. The light, while you feed the wire through the center stud thread, the screw collar on to the center stud, pull the lamp wires and cables down to where you can work on them. If the lamp has a ground wire, always connect it first, as a safety measure, connect a hands length of solid wire to the ground, screw on the strap and twist the wire, together with the cables solid ground wire twist. The strands of the lamps green brown wire together wrap them around the solid wires and cover with a wire nut twist the white wires together and cover with a wire knife twist the black wires together and cover with a wire nut. If the lamp hangs from a screw caller, the lamp wire and screw caller already are in place slide the canopy up against the ceiling and thread the nut over the threads on the screw collar to hold the canopy in place. If you're mounting the light on a swivel strap slip, the bolts into the slots in the strapline up the bolts with the holes in the light and attach using the decorative mounting nuts on a center-mounted light slip. The canopy over the center stud read the decorative nut over it and snug the nut securely against the canopy. You
